Berlin has so many great examples of typical architecture and design from several different periods and one of the best for Baroque architecture is the Charlottenburg Palace. Built in 1695, it was originally the summer home of Sophie Charlotte, wife of Frederick I who commissioned the building. World War II saw some of the palace damaged and destroyed from bombing but it was very quickly restored to its former glory, complete with original furniture and interiors, and stands today in a vast and beautiful parkland area. If you happen to be in town when there are concerts or performances held within the palace, try to get your hands on tickets as the experience is once in a lifetime!
Get stuck in to local culture and customs and head to Zur Letzen Instanz restaurant for a truly authentic taste of German cuisine. The whole place exudes a sense of old-school Berlin charm, with an appealing and rustic interior to serve as a backdrop to honest, comforting dishes. Having first opened in 1621, the eatery has seen many a famous face pass through its doors including Beethoven, Napoleon and Angela Merkel. So as you munch away on grilled pork knuckle or meat patties, you’ll be in good company! And remember everything tastes better washed down with a pint of foamy beer!
